Certifications HomeCounter-Insider Threat



In 2010, Executive Order 13587 established the requirement for all USG Executive Agencies to establish an Insider Threat Program. The Executive Order also established the National Insider Threat Task Force, co-led by the ODNI and DoJ, and the minimum standards by which an Insider Threat program would be deemed operational.


The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, in partnership with the National Insider Threat Task Force, focused on the people-related aspect of the Counter-Insider Threat (C-InT) capability, and created two C-InT Professional Certifications.  These certifications were developed with maximum participation from across the US Government, resulting in broad applicability across C-InT workforces. 

  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Fundamentals (CCITP-F): This certification establishes a common standard of fundamental knowledge and skills required of all who serve and support the C-InT capability. This certification focuses on the understanding of insider threat program mission, policies, and basic operations.
  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Analysis (CCITP-A):  This certification establishes a common standard of analytic tradecraft of all who serve and support the C-InT capability; it focuses on the analysis of insider threat-relevant information, and development of mitigation recommendations. 

Registration for June testing is currently open through Friday, May 15, 2020. Testing will open Monday, June 1, 2020 and close on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.


Initial conferral of CCITP certifications were issued February 20, 2020. Subject Matter Experts who participated in exam development along with individuals who met all certification requirements should have received an email regarding how to access your digital badge and printable certificate. If you have not received this communication, please email the PMO at OSD.CINT-Certification@mail.mil. ​


NO SHOW POLICY: If a candidate does not cancel or reschedule a confirmed exam at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled exam and does not show up for their scheduled exam, the USG will still be charged an exam seat fee as if the candidate sat for the exam.  PLEASE make every effort to make your scheduled exam date or reschedule in time to meet the Pearson VUE Deadline.  If an individual is a no-show for two exam iterations, he or she will not be able to participate in the CCITP program.  Individuals may appeal by submitting a waiver request explaining why they were unable to make scheduled exam sessions.
